Bottom Line: We examined cross-sectional data on 500 000 adults recruited from 10 diverse localities across China during 2004-08.The main analyses excluded those reported taking any antihypertensive medication, and were adjusted for age, region and education.The overall mean [standard deviation (SD)] BMI was 23.6 (3.3) kg/m(2) and mean WC was 80.0 (9.5) cm.

SBP vs waist and hip circumference, before and after adjustment for BMI, in men and women. The means of SBP were calculated for each sex-specific decile of waist circumference (left panel) and hip circumference (right panel), with (a) standard adjustment for age, education and study area; and (b) additional adjustment for BMI (as a continuous variable). Conventions as in Figure 1.

dyv012-F2: SBP vs waist and hip circumference, before and after adjustment for BMI, in men and women. The means of SBP were calculated for each sex-specific decile of waist circumference (left panel) and hip circumference (right panel), with (a) standard adjustment for age, education and study area; and (b) additional adjustment for BMI (as a continuous variable). Conventions as in Figure 1.

Mentions: Figure 2 shows the sex-specific associations of SBP with WC and HC. With basic adjustment, each 10 cm wider circumference for either variable was typically associated with about 5–7 mmHg higher SBP. However, after further adjustment for BMI, all of these associations were largely or entirely eliminated. Upon taking account of BMI, the associations of blood pressure with WC were attenuated by 80–90% in both sexes, and for HC the remaining associations in women became slightly negative—i.e. greater HC was associated with slightly lower SBP.Figure 2.
